I was passing a bush of Witch-hazel, (hamamelis Virginiana,) and was arrested by an unusual humming of bees.
Perhaps hamamelis would have at once cured, but it was not at hand.
At the Cameron farm there were two hamamelis bottles, one in the bath-room, the other on a shelf in the kitchen.
Eighteen genera compose the sub-tropical family in which hamamelis is the type.
Also the injection of one-half pint cold water, containing a teaspoonful of extract of hamamelis, after a passage, affords relief.
But the Calycanthus, and a tree of a new genus allied to hamamelis, I am sorry to say, are no more.
hamamelis V., (Witch Hazel,) will in nearly all cases arrest the bleeding at once.
I rely upon it more faithfully than I do upon hamamelis, sculus, etc.
Witch Hazel (hamamelis virginiana) is a cousin to red gum, but there is small resemblance.
A pungent odour exactly like that of extract of hamamelis met his nostrils.
